How did Twitter react to Emre Can's outrageous performance for Liverpool this weekend?

Emre Can performed excellently for Liverpool this weekend.

Liverpool pulled off perhaps their best performance yet under Jurgen Klopp at the weekend - as they dismantled Manchester City on their home turf.

An own goal from Eliaquim Mangala got things rolling before strikes from Phillipe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Martin Skrtel then completed the rout after Sergio Aguero had earlier given Manchester City some hope.

The performance of the two Brazilian players in particular stunned City.

Coutinho's form has picked up since the appointment of Klopp and Firmino is also now fidning his best form.

The pair were in terrific form and combined on numerous occasions throughout the match - leaving the City defenders chasing headless chickens.

But whilst they took many of the plaudits the performance of German international Emre Can was perhaps the most impressive.

He had a tough week. He was part of the Germany squad that ended up staying in the Stade de France overnight after the horrible terrorist attacks in Paris and his nation then had a game in Hannover called off after another terrorist threat.

Emre Can might have been considered a defender under Brendan Rodgers but Klopp has him being more expressive than ever. He put in an excellent all-round performance but there is no doubt that his party-piece was his back-heel that started the move for the third goal.

Twitter was aghast at the weekend and Can is finally looking like the talent Liverpool fans hoped he could be.

Ahead of Liverpool's meeting with Bordeaux in the Europa League on Thursday night, here is what theor fans thought of Can's recent performance...
